In the latest Gallup research it was reported that 68% of people were disengaged at work and that 5 out of 10 employees were looking for a better job. If you’re still searching for your dream job and haven’t found it yet, clearly you are not alone.
This means a couple of things. There are a whole lot of people not happy at work and if you are looking for another job or a promotion, you are competing with them. The other part of the research found that when people change jobs, because they were disengaged at their last one, they usually are not happy with their new one, either. Basically, the grass isn’t greener.
Yes, organizations need to do a better job of making jobs more engaging and people like you and me need to be sure we know what our dream job is and why we would be good at it. Finding the right fit can be challenging if you aren’t quite sure of what that would be.
Discovering what we are good at can be tricky. For most of us, it’s a process of a slow learning process of highs and lows to determine what we like and what we don’t. We match that up against the positions we have held and take a guess at where we would best fit in an organization and which organization is the best fit for us.
Wouldn’t it be nice to take the guessing out of it?
I thought so, too. That’s why we’ve developed a quick and easy way to discover your Genius Zone. Some people might call it your lane. It’s that place, that when you are in it, doesn’t feel like work at all. You are utilizing your strengths, you’re motivated, engaged and you inspire others to be the same way. It’s possible. I promise.
There are just a few steps.
STEP ONE: It starts with taking a DISC assessment. This is going to tell you what behavioral styles you are. What type of people you function well with and which ones you need to be with to be at your best and most effective. This assessment will help you communicate with others better and will allow you to communicate more effectively how to interact with you.
STEP TWO: You will also take the Motivators assessment. This is a combo report with the DISC and the combo only takes about 20 minutes. This assessment will show you what motivates you and what type of environment will engage you the most. If you’ve ever felt like you were out of place at an organization or the people at work just weren’t a good fit, it probably had something to do with your motivators. This easy to take assessment is a key that will help unlock the door to your potential and show you just which seat will suit you in an organization.
STEP THREE: You’ll take about 15 minutes (yep, we are only talking about 35 minutes so far) and complete the Cortex Team Strengths assessment. This one is a practical guide to how you like to work on a team and which phase projects you are best at.
STEP FOUR: We take these assessments, and their complex set of data points, and have a 2-hour, one-on-one coaching session with you to go over the findings and create a genius zone set of criteria for you to use as a guide in your professional development. This can be done in person, by phone, or on FaceTime or Skype.
You’ll learn things like:
- What your strengths are
- Which types of jobs or positions to avoid
- Words you can use in your resume or on an application to communicate what you are best at and how you will bring value to the organization
- What you need to develop, as a professional, to get to the next level in your career
- What to look for in an organization to know if it is the right fit for you
- How to best communicate your strengths and value during an interview for a job or promotion
- What type of team you would fit best on
- What position, on a team, you will thrive in
- Why you procrastinate certain things, and which things to avoid being responsible for
- and more.
